About this photo

Shot at Ikegami Honmon-ji, a Buddhist temple in Ikegami, Tokyo. A five-storied pagoda was standing in the precinct of this temple which was built in 1282. Some birds were just flying around the pagoda. The pagoda was not so old like the temple itself. Even so, it was built in 1607 and is one of the oldest pagodas in Tokyo area.

Most of the historical architectures in Japan were made from woods. So it was difficult to preserve for a ling time. They were based on the assumption of the reconstruction.
